“Western jihad is here to stay,” warned Awlaqi as he commented on a blonde American who dubbed herself “JihadJane” and has pleaded not guilty to trying to recruit Islamist militants to murder a Swedish cartoonist.
“Jihad is becoming as American as apple pie and as British as afternoon tea,” the US-Yemeni cleric said in an English-language message posted on militant forums and released by the US-based SITE monitoring agency….
“Eight years after 9/11 and the declaration of war against terrorism, jihad is still reaching the shores of Europe and America. Not from the outside, but from within. Jihad is not being imported but is being homegrown,” read the message attributed to Awlaqi.

“The US has spent billions to protect its airlines but they couldn’t prevent Umar Farouk, and the West has been profiling until ‘Jihad Jane’ shattered whatever trust was left in the value of profiling,” the message read.
“A blond, blue-eyed, small framed, middle-aged female. It couldn’t get any further from your typical ‘terrorist’ profile.”…
